A sturdy, twangy rock appeal lingers throughout “Like the Earth is Flat,” a new track from Little Champion. The project of Asheville, NC-based Dustin Goldklang first caught our ears with the single “Oops I Got Sad” in late 2022, and continues a strong sound here with “Like the Earth is Flat.”
“I drown out all of my senses with Selling Sunset and too much takeout,” the vocals convey — certainly relatable sentiments — amidst anxious ruminations, contemplating on mortality and impeding doom. A stirring lyrical prowess persists. Feelings of existential anxieties run throughout, even during activities of the mundane and routine nature. “Each time I go out walking, there’s a small chance of me dying,” the vocals begin, admitting during the chorus that “I could use a heart attack like the earth is flat.” “Like the Earth is Flat” is an emotively impactful showing from Little Champion.
